Woman holding American flag dragged by protester in Boston
BOSTON, MA - AUGUST 19: Protesters face off with riot police escorting conservative activists following a march in Boston against a planned 'Free Speech Rally' on August 19, just a week after the violent 'Unite the Right' rally in Virginia left one woman dead and dozens more injured. Although the rally organizers stress that they are not associated with any alt-right or white supremacist groups, the city of Boston and Police Commissioner William Evans are preparing for possible confrontations at the afternoon rally.

A clip showed a woman holding an American flag as a protester tries to rip it from her hands. The woman held on to the flag and is dragged toward a group of people, some of whom are wearing masks. She then charges into the group, apparently to confront the individual who just tried to take her flag.
Eventually, others come to help and console her. The video was shown on Fox News where a commentator said, “You can’t grab something out of someone’s hand and drag them on the ground, that’s their property and that’s assault.”
The Boston rally has been relatively peaceful. A huge mass of counter-protesters marched through the streets, while only about 60 of the Alt-right protesters were in the park where the rally is being held.
